We don’t have a release date for the Samsung Epic 4G but Spring have gone ahead and made a comparison video between their two super-high end smartphone devices, the HTC EVO 4G and the Samsung Epic 4G. Sprint are actually pretty hands-on when it comes to promoting devices themselves, but I have never seen a direct comparison like this before. The video is pretty balanced without stating that one phone is ‘better’ than the other, and focusing purely on their relative strengths.

Epic 4G offers

  • slide out QWERTY keyboard
  • Super AMOLED display
  • Awesome graphics (PowerVR SGX540)

EVO 4G offers

  • Larger display
  • High MP camera
  • HDMI-out port
  • Already updated to Android 2.2

The rumor mill has it that the Epic 4G will cost around at $199 with 2-year contract and might be available as early as August 21st.
